The latest Tiffany Reisz gothic suspense novel was just as addicting as her previous novels. Check out my review of The Lucky Ones!
They called themselves “the lucky ones.” They were seven children either orphaned or abandoned by their parents and chosen by legendary philanthropist and brain surgeon Dr. Vincent Capello to live in The Dragon, his almost magical beach house on the Oregon Coast. Allison was the youngest of the lucky ones living an idyllic life with her newfound family…until the night she almost died, and was then whisked away from the house and her adopted family forever.
Now, thirteen years later, Allison receives a letter from Roland, Dr. Capello’s oldest son, warning her that their father is ill and in his final days. Allison determines she must go home again and confront the ghosts of her past. She’s determined to find out what really happened that fateful night–was it an accident or, as she’s always suspected, did one of her beloved family members try to kill her?
But digging into the past can reveal horrific truths, and when Allison pieces together the story of her life, she’ll learns the terrible secret at the heart of the family she once loved but never really knew.
A vivid and suspenseful tale of family, grief, love—and the dark secrets that bind everything together—Tiffany Reisz’s latest is enthralling to the final page.
Can Tiffany Reisz do no wrong? This author seems to knock it out of the park with every single book, even when I go into the book unsure as to whether I will like it or not. I always end up instantly gripped by her words, and her storylines have me devouring the pages and constantly desperate for more.
For the first half of The Lucky Ones, I was convinced the Capello’s were the most perfect family in the world. It was impossible not to love each one of them wholeheartedly, but as I read more, I became very unsure and torn between “I love them so much” and “they’re all crazy!!!” No matter what happened, that soft spot I had developed for them remained, and I won’t say which side won out by the end, I’ll leave it up to you to discover for yourselves.
There were some absolutely fantastic characters with intriguing back stories which I would love to see more of in any possible future books, though I’m not sure how likely that is.
What I do know for definite, is that I will continue to read every word this author puts out there, and no doubt I will love each and every one.

*Though all of these books can be read as standalones, they are all linked (and fantastic) so I suggest reading them all*
If she couldn’t write, she would die. Probably in a volcano eruption.
